Patrick Lowery, P.E., the company's director of product development, says the new flowmeter does all this while providing the ruggedness, repeatability, and safety of a field process instrument. He adds: "In addition to the outstanding measurement functions, the DMT Series incorporates patent-pending, non-clogging flow restriction technology and integral pressure relief to protect the flow sensor in sudden or accidental overpressure situations."
Unlike conventional low-flow meters, such as thermal mass flow devices, DMT Series flowmeters provide multi-variable measurement data and control through either a CANbus (CT76 iCAN or CANopen) or Modbus RTU digital interface. They also offer full IP65 and NEMA4x protection in severe environmental conditions. They're designed for low-power, fault-tolerant, intrinsic safety/non-incendive applications.
Explains Lowery: "The DMT flowmeter is the first device of its kind to provide full multi-variable measurement and closed-loop control in a Class 1, Division 1 hazardous area, without requiring explosion-proof conduits and enclosures."
